- Increased stakes in Wal-Mart, Wells Fargo, Bank of NY Mellon, DirecTV
- Decreased Stakes in Intel, Kraft Foods, P&G, Dollar General
Trader Takeaway: "I own GM," says Tim Seymour, "and it’s been a painful trade. But at 5 ½ times valuation I think it’s a great value. However, I also think they're looking at a 2-year turnaround."
"At $22 the current valuation in GM is interesting," adds Guy Adami. "It's an attractive risk reward. I think the risk to the downside is $20 but the upside potential is $28."
- New stakes in Expedia, Computer Sciences
- Cuts stakes in CBS, Dell, GM, Microsoft
- Eliminated stakes in Yahoo, First Solar
Trader Takeaway: "At $35 I thought CBS was toppy," says Guy Adami. "There will be a point to get back into CBS but we’re not there yet. "

Trader Takeaway: "His stake in Apple is interesting," says Karen Finerman. Between January and March Apple marched significantly higher, yet Loeb was a buyer.
